Why these product/services considered as GREEN? (what’s the impact on the environment/community)
Food Scraps – 80% of our organic waste goes to feeding livestock that our staff and their families own. This means that our organic waste is going towards producing more food for families, rather than just being thrown out.
Biodegradable take-away packaging – Rather than using polystyrene that takes an estimated 1 million years to breakdown, we use take biodegradable take away packaging made from sustainable and renewable natural fibres, sourced from EcoSense Cambodia. This initiative prevents approximately 1,200 polystyrene containers from clogging up our landfills, rivers, and oceans.
Upcycling – In Cambodia we don’t yet have a glass recycling system. So we find ways to upcycle old glass products. We use old beer-bottles that are cut into glasses by Saarti and wine bottles to serve complimentary drinking water.
Bamboo straws – these bamboo straws from Saarti are reusable, 100% organic, and biodegradable. By using bamboo straws we are preventing approximately 20,000 straws from entering landfill each year.
Eggs – we source eggs from Eggscellent, a local company that supplies free range eggs in Siem Reap and creates ethical jobs for locals outside Siem Reap
Recycling – our team collects all our recyclable waste and sells it to the recycling plants.
Biodegradable plastic bags – we use biodegradable plastic bags from Cleanbodia. Regular plastic bags can take 450 years to decompose. Our biodegradable bags decompose in 1 to 2 years. We estimate this saves around 1,500 old style bags from polluting our environment every year.
Used cooking oil – we donate our used cooking oil to Naga Earth. They turn our waste into biodiesel which is a clean alternative to fossil fuels, as well as soap which is then donated to local schools!
